New Release: Cimorelli offers a message of hope to struggling teens

Share

Pain is inevitable, misery is optional.

The sisters of Cimorelli are back with the title track of their newest album, Alive. Their second full-length album explores many good and bad aspects of life. In an interview with Miss O and Friends, the second oldest, Katherine, describes the work:

Alive is a collection of life songs. There is a lot of hope, positivity and a strong, uplifting message. There are songs about God, shame, addiction, keeping the faith in finding the right person, finding beauty in pain, and not giving up on life.”

“Alive” focuses on loneliness and emotional pain. These feelings can often lead one to frustration, but Cimorelli contends that these just as important as joy and love. They are all part of being “Alive.”

Cimorelli has written songs about feeling isolated or contemplating self-harm before. Today, with incidents of teen suicide broadcast over live-streams, and television shows focusing on the topic, teens need a role model that can lead them to hope. The Cimorelli sisters and their music may be exactly what a confused kid needs to turn away from the darkness of self-doubt and toward the light.
